Heads Up 26 by SeanRM Heads Up 26 by SeanRM
Let's Go!! Rider Week continues with two of my favorite villains.

While most of the "evil generals" that appear in the Kamen Rider series have a militaristic feel to them, I was immediately drawn in by the first general of the Black Satan army. Appearing to be a high ranking Yakuza member and then transforming into his true cycloptic form, Mr. Titan made an immediate impression on me. He would go on clashing with Stronger until losing a fight to the death with the Electric Rider. Thus we met the second general of Black Satan; General Shadow.

Shadow is a villain in the vein of Hakaider; a lone wolf with his own priorities who would sometimes kill his own men to get his way. This personality clashes immediately with the reborn from the dead Hundred-Eyes Titan. In a great bit of character writing and design, these polar opposites would continue to clash over who would be the one to finally kill Kamen Rider Stronger - to the point where they would sabotage each others plans.

Design wise, I mixed Shadow's original costume with his recent design from the All Riders: Let's Go Kamen Riders film. I like alot about his new look, but his original helmet seems a bit more sinister to me. The new one is a little too streamlined.

to me Mr.Titan was a good villian and Black Satan was one of the more scarier restorations of Shocker

I love the warring villains of tokusatsu - it's so much more intriguing when they aren't all on the same page.

Your General Shadow helmet is perfect!

Yeah, the villains that think and act of their own accord are so much more interesting to watch than the loyal drones.

You're making me want to start watching Kamen Rider with these, seriously.

Also, nice choice greying out the lines on the foreground fella to convey that his head is behind glass. It's a small touch but it gives a lot of extra depth and verisimilitude to the pic.

My plan is working...

Thanks, I'm glad the effect worked out as well as it did.
